Brooks on the Beautiful Game

Lionel Messi for Barcelona against Viktoria Plzen, via Barcaforum.
David Brooks suggests that he kind of likes World Cup soccer, and quotes some estimable writers on the subject. I'm really inclined to take the Brooksological day off and let him alone, except this:
soccer is like a 90-minute anxiety dream — one of those frustrating dreams when you’re trying to get somewhere but something is always in the way.
No it isn't. If that's how it feels to you, you should be watching a different sport.
